First International ICST Conference on Mobile Networks And Management
MONAMI 2009, 13-15 October, 2009, Athens, Greece
Aim and Scope
MONAMI 2009 aims at bringing together top researchers, academics and practitioners specializing in the area of Mobile Network Management (MNM).
Multiaccess and resource management, mobility management, and network management have emerged as core topics in the design, deployment and operation of current and future networks. Yet, they are treated as separate, isolated domains with very little interaction between the experts in these fields and lack cross-pollination. MONAMI 2009 offers the opportunity to leading researchers, industry professionals and academics around the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in these areas and present results related to technologies for true plug-and-play networking, efficient use of all infrastructure investments, and access competition. The aim of the forum is to disseminate the latest innovative mobile network solutions for increased competition and cooperation in an environment with a multitude of access technologies, network operators and business actors.
MONAMI 2009 invites papers that follow either evolutionary approaches based on current IP-centered architectures or introduce revolutionary MNM approaches and new paradigms. Papers reporting experimental and empirical studies as well as implementation/industry results (including testbeds and field trials) are also welcome.
Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Multiaccess networks and resource management
Energy efficiency for multiaccess networks
Security solutions for managed and infrastructureless networks
Emerging and visionary multimedia services, service enablers and management
Identity management for mobile users
Multimedia services in mobile/multiaccess networks
Business models and Economics for a mobile/multiaccess world
Future Internet architectures for Mobile Network Management
Autonomic computing and self-management
Management standards and enabling technologies, including IEEE 802.21
Design, implementation, and testbed/experimental evaluations
The Proceedings of MONAMI 2009 will be published in >>Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). More about the benefits of LNICST can be found >>here.
